    Since Wicca is only about 70 years old, a “new” and “old” division is rather nonsensical.

    Most often, when someone speak of “old Wicca”, they are talking about something that doesn’t exist: an ancient pre-Christian religion that survived in secret for centuries. It never existed. There’s no evidence for it *at all*.

    Some Traditionalists speak of Wicca and neo-Wicca, which you can ignore. It’s basically telling Eclectics “what you’re doing isn’t real Wicca.” Considering for the longest times these same Traditionalists refused to even call themselves Wiccan, it’s really nonsensical. Traditional and Eclectic Wicca are different, but they are both still Wicca.

    edit: Wow, 7 thumbs down, yet not a single person willing to offer an alternative explanation? That’s a wee bit suspicious.

  • What’s the difference between a Pagan and a Heathen?

    Question by S Class: What’s the difference between a Pagan and a Heathen?
    I thought that Pagans were worshipers of rocks and trees and stuff. Heathens I thought were defined as those who are “godless”. Can someone help me out here? It seems the two simply fall under “Spiritualism” and are not defined any further.

    Answer by Frau Hunter JPA
    pagans don’t worship rocks and trees – ask your ancestors. They have deities and very refined religions. Paganism is an umbrella term for religions that aren’t Abrahamic (Christian/Jewish/Muslim).

    heathen with a small “h” means uncivilized, godless and barbaric (Christian definition)

    Heathen with a capital “H” means someone that is part of the reconstruction pagan religion of Northern Europe/Anglo-Saxon England. Also known as Asatru, Vor Tru, Theodism, Odinism, etc.

    perhaps a Wiki search on paganism will help with the education.

    Pagans and Heathens are very serious about our religions.

    There are Hindus, Kemetics, Celtic Reconstructionists, Roman, Greek/Hellenism, Druidic, Slavic, Baltic, Icelandic, Finnish, Native American, Japanese, etc.

    The religions are VERY defined. Spiritualism usually means something a little more eclectic and New Age.

  • Q&A: What is the true difference between “Pagan” , “Atheist” and “Agnostic”?

    Question by Loving Him 777: What is the true difference between “Pagan” , “Atheist” and “Agnostic”?
    And…would you say you are more innately this or is it due to circumstance, environment or experiences in your life? Truly would like to know to understand more about it.

    Best answer:

    Answer by The Reverend Soleil
    The atheist says, “I don’t believe any gods exist.”

    The agnostic says, “I’m not sure whether any gods exists, and it may not be possible to find out for sure within this lifetime.”

    The pagan says, “I have my own gods, and don’t need to bow before your god Jehovah or his earthly avatar Jesus.”

    I’d say that in the vast majority of cases people are the religion they are, because that’s the religion their family or peer group belonged to.

  • Question for a Buddhist: “What are main differences between Mahayana Buddhism & Theravad Buddhism ?”

    Question by tom: Question for a Buddhist: “What are main differences between Mahayana Buddhism & Theravad Buddhism ?”
    What does one focus a bit more on than the other ?

    Just as there are differences in different denominations within Christianity, there are some differences within the religious choices of Buddhism.

    For Christians, no matter what denomination, the end result should be the same.

    “For all Buddhists, the goals are always the same !”

    The way I see it is that the two traditions are complimentary. It is not a case of EITHER OR. It is a case of a CONTINUUM. We start of with the beginning – the roots (Theravada) and then continue up the trunk into the branches, leaves and flowers ( Mahayana). So the two Traditions can benefit us quite a lot if we have an open mind. If our roots are not strong and well placed (i.e.our knowledge of the Theravadan Teachings is shallow and weak) no way we can grow upwards to benefit from the leaves and flowers. Master Chin Kung gave this example to his Mahayana audience. He told them everyone is busy building high rise buildings. They forgot to build strong foundations and straight away wanted to build the 3rd-10th floor…would those floors tumble down..for sure they will! Likewise it is the case with learning these two traditions. That is one of the reasons why, so many people are quite confused over the issue.

    To really comprehend the teachings of Mahayana, one needs to get the concept of the Three Bodies of the Buddha in perspective, Dhammakaya, Sambodhakaya and Nirmanakaya. If not, then it will cause confusion. Why not do a search and see what you can find.
